    1925, Adolphe Philibert creates the heavy trucks trading business in Lyon.

    In 1930, he began the activity of people transportation with the creation of a first line between Lyon and Saint-Claude, a second one between Lyon and Annecy in 1932, then he bought the line Lyon – Bourg en Bresse in 1936.

    In 1948, Philibert won the prize for the elegance of the coaches. Excellence and Respect will then become the strong values of the company.

    In the 1950s, Leo Philibert, son of Adolphe, predicts the boom of the holiday’s market and diversifies its activity. Thus, he launches a first travel agency in Brotteaux and becomes the first regional tour-operator specialized on Greece. The tourism activity combines new means of transportation such as boat and airplane.

    Our development

    Our development

    With the arrival of the TGV (fast train) in Lyon, Marc Philibert, our current CEO and grandson of Adolphe, launched the incoming business, accompanying numerous tourists on their discovery of the region’s richnesses.

    To support its development, Philibert Transport regularly opened new operations centers, providing the proximity and quality of service essential to the company’s unifying values.
    Today, Philibert depots operate routes in the Rhône, Loire, Ain, Isère, Savoie and Haute Savoie regions.

    Philibert, a reference

    Philibert drivers transport customers and travelers daily to schools, workplaces and leisure sites.

    Providing more than 40 regular public lines and serving more than 250 cities in Rhone-Alpes, its fleet of vehicles increased from 2 buses in 1925 to 485 in 2015.

    Renowned for their commitment to safety and friendliness, Philibert drivers welcome and drive around 20,000 children every day between their homes and their schools.

    With its reputation, the company Philibert is proud today to be a reference in the transport of travelers and to accompany, every day, thousands of people to their final destination: school, work, leisure, holidays…

    Adolphe, Leo, Marc, three names for the same signature: Transport Philibert, Excellence and Respect.
